The MakerLab will be participating in two upcoming local enterprise fairs. On Friday, September 20, 2013, we will participate in the University of Illinois Research Park’s annual Prototyping Fair. This event showcases regional resources for product development and prototyping and will be held at the EnterpriseWorks Building at 60 Hazelwood Drive in Champaign.
Then, on Saturday, September 21, 2013, we will participate in the Urbana-Champaign Mini Maker Faire. This event highlights Urbana-Champaign’s growing maker community and will have plenty of hands-on activities. This is a great event for families and a nice forum to learn how to make something. The Maker Faire will be held at the Independent Media Center at 202 S. Broadway in Urbana.
At both of these events, our Guru’s will be sporting their Orange maker t-shirts and will bring along a 3D printer and some of the neat things that we have made with this fascinating technology. Please stop by and say hi.
